This group right here is one of the most underrated groups in football. We don't talk enough about this group. Very smart, they don't leave the field, they play every single down, and they can cover backs and tight ends out of the backfield. This group is special.
“I'm not bitter at all. I'm not upset with the Patriots. I've been to Pro Bowls. I've won Super Bowls. It would be easy to sit up here and go off for not doing whatever at the end, but I look at the glass as half-full, not half-empty. I got to build my name in a great community and play with a lot of great players and coaches.”
“Vick is different than every other quarterback we've faced. Vick is one guy and of course, you've got to contain him, but they've got a lot of other good players on that team. We're not going to game-plan for one guy.”
“This is a team that reacts very well to pressure. Of course there is pressure for the playoffs. So we have to have more pressure on ourselves to go out and perform well so we can get another weekend.”

“The advantage Troy has is he can read a lot of those routes because he is a receiver. He understands what receivers are trying to do and he knows all the little tricks, so he has a little advantage over the corners as far as that goes.”
“No matter what's happening, what type of receivers come in that could be more talented than him, his work ethic and high level of playing -- big plays, making plays, and being clutch -- keeps him grounded here. It keeps him stable. Makes it hard not to like a guy like that.”
“It's not ever just one guy, but Richard definitely makes a big difference. He's unstoppable if you try to block him one-on-one.”
“We've been on the road before. We didn't have all our [playoff] games at home [in two] of the years we won the Super Bowl. We've had to play in hostile environments before.”
